When you’re a dad of a certain age new rules apply. Rules, let’s be honest, that kids just don’t get.

To celebrate Fathers' Day on June 16 are Great Escape Classic Car Hire’s fashion-be-damned Top 5 Ultimate Dads' Cars. The models are based on their customer feedback and rental volumes.

Call them old-school or retro or whatever but the list hopes to change youthful notions of cool, style and fashion.

The ultimate dads' cars, according to Great Escape, are embarrassing to anybody under the age of 25 but unadulterated joy to blokes with more hair in their ears than on their head.

See the top five (videos included):

Ford Mustang
Corvette Stingray
Jensen Interceptor
Jaguar Mk2
Ford Capri
